Description Jim Roper 2015-03-19 17:10:25 UTC
When using Impress, I used the dual screen (one was built-in monitor, other was a projector), the built-in screen showed a larger image of the presentation than it should (not all fit), while the projector screen only shows images and not text. When I inverted the projection, the built-in screen looked as the projected image did before (no text, only figures) while the projected image looked like the built-in monitor (large image, cropped). No change after restarting. Makes it impossible to use, thus losing the great benefit of the dual screen!

Please provide more information about your operating system and the version of LibreOffice (found in help - info about LibreOffice).
Could you provide a sample file (without any personal data) that causes the issue? That would help to look at your issue.

I tried with your slides that don't fit the regular format of a presentation slide. It's more a letter size (it has more hight than width).
I run the presentation with an external screen connected to my Notebook and the slides are displayed correctly on the external screen. The presenter console on the Notebook has issues with the format of the slides (too high). But that's all. I used openSuSE 13.2-x64 with KDE and LibreOffice 4.3.6 from the LibreOffice project website.

It would be great if you could provide a screenshot of the issue on your hardware and some more information about your operating system and the version of LibreOffice.

I can confirm with LO, win7, 2 monitors
First slide is without text box, others slides are correct. When I write text to second slide, I can see the text in slideshow. Problem is on first slide only. When I delete picture and leave only text box, I still can not see this text in slideshow. Change page format to A4 - still the same problem ( original page format Custom 19x25,4 cm). 

This also don't work with new empty presentation /  page with 2 text boxes. Setting to new.

Please take a look at bug 89190. For me disable hardware acceleration helps.

I just tested this issue with LO on a 64 bit computer with windows 10 home edition having the most recent update. Now most of the problem is fixed and slides show correctly (that is, all the parts show up, both text and images). However, the size of the image on the first monitor (not the projected image) is larger than the screen space - it seems that the width is being optimized and not the height. So, a tall slide the width of the screen cuts both the top and bottom of the slide. 

And, using the option to view slides, where Presentation shows a list of slides, all the slides are fine. Apparently, it's just when using a single, portrait, slide in the presentation is the issue. If I explain myself. Now the bug is minimal and bearable.
